On A Binge

December 16, 2014

Binge-watched Marco Polo on Netflix the last two days. Simply outstanding!


$2.19.9 gas at Sam’s yesterday. Screw the Arabs!

Lollipop Lessons

December 15, 2014

I’ve done some research and discovered a few tips that may help with the new Lollipop update on my Nexus 7.

Swipe down with one finger for notifications. Two fingers for settings. Turn Wi-Fi on and off by tapping the icon. To find more Wi-FI signals tap below the icon under the horizontal line. Tap the gear symbol at the top for all the settings. Tap the colored sphere next to the gear to switch users.

Google has just added an app in the Play Store to help with Nexus devices called Device Assist. It’s extremely helpful for finding all the features for your device like the ones above. It even has a search option. If you’re still stumped, there’s a Contact Support link at the bottom. You can either leave feedback or have them call you for one-on-one support.

Also, for a bit of fun, go to the settings page and tap the “About tablet” link at the bottom right. Then repeatedly  tap the “Android version” link. When you see a large Lollipop graphic appear on your screen, tap the circle part of the image about five times and then press and hold your finger to it. You’ll then be taken into an Android-themed Flappy Bird-like game, with lots o’ lollipop obstacles to jump through and avoid.

Time To Measure Up

December 11, 2014

Troy Martin of Bucket Boy Graphics stopped by today to measure the course. They do the yardage books for the Champions and LPGA Tours and after hearing we retooled bunkers and changed the fourteenth green, it was time to update their product.

Just got the Lollipop upgrade on my Nexus 7. So we’ll see how that works.

Saw the latest installment of the Hunger Games franchise. Nothing special. Picture seemed too dark. Did anyone else see it? Are my eyes failing?

Then there was this:

Stephanie Meadow misses out on top LPGA card after dramatic play-off

Playoff

December 7, 2014

Seven players enter, three players earn their card. After the three hole playoff only one player was eliminated.

One more to get in after sudden death. I guess they finish tomorrow.


The LPGA live scoring leaderboard could not suck more. Why does it take so long to load?

Then there was this:

Cut Day

December 6, 2014

Some notable names failed to make it to the final round. Should be quite a dogfight for that 20th spot.

Stage 3, Round Two

December 4, 2014

Good to see some familiar names towards the top of the leaderboard. Not so good for some others.

Beth Ann Nichols@GolfweekNichols Jenny Gleason aced the 6th hole today on the Jones Course at LPGA Q-School. Can’t think of a better time!

Round of the day so far goes to smiley Ha Na Jang, who shot 7-under 65 on the Hills Course. She has a big game and a fun personality.
